Black History Month Celebration at Provident Hospital

I want to thank Cook County Health and Cook County Board President, Toni Preckwinkle, for inviting  I Am Abel Foundation to speak at their Black History event at Provident Hospital that was focused on promoting Health Equity and Health Careers for our future Heroes in Healthcare.  The event was a huge success !

Thank you also to I Am Abel Board Member and Associate Director of Simulation at Cook County Health, Ashlea Winfield, MD, for this beautiful opportunity and for always broadly sharing the impact of the I Am Abel Foundation on our community.  

A huge thanks to I Am Abel Board Member, CMO Integrated Health Friend Health/HRDI and President of the Cook County Physicians Association, Audrey Tanksley, MD, for proudly sharing the mission and work of I Am Abel Foundation where she has also served as a Physician Mentor and Clinical Course Instructor since 2017.  She was accompanied by our brilliant and amazing mentees, Chelsea Nwanah and Isaiah Lasisi

 • Chelsea Nwanah. 2019 Mentee and Chief Social Media Ambassador, I Am Abel Foundation 

 • Isaiah Lasisi, 2022 Mentee, MCAT Science Instructor, I Am Abel MCAT Warriors 

The mentees shared from a student perspective the extensive programming available at I Am Abel Foundation designed to empower them and every Chicago area student that dreams of becoming the next generation of Healthcare Heroes. 

I hated to miss this Black History Month event at Provident Hospital, but so so thankful that our capable leaders and students represented !   

In the words of the 1st Ghanian President and Prime Minister, Dr Kwame Nkrumah, “Forward Ever Backward Never!” ❤️
